Fix A Leak Feedback Letters
Since I suspected
the leak to be around the frame of the skimmer,
I turned off the skimmer circulation, blocked
the pool side of the skimmer, poured a little of
the Fix a Leak into the skimmer and stirred it
up periodically, during the day, for the last
week. It worked perfectly.

We were finally
able to take the time to use the fix a leak
product for our small exercise pool and
subsequently for our indoor garden pool, stream
and water fall.. After 48 hours of
circulation the pool is perfect. Rather than
waste the water, we pumped it into the other
pond and have sealed it as well (still have 1/3
bottle left for another project). Great
stuff. Thank you.
Richard E., Hotel N. S., 1/4/2016
Alan, Thanks!!! I
had a pretty good leak and
Fix A Leak
has stopped it. I will now wait 72 hours so it
can cure. Thanks for your help on this!!!
Hello Alan, I just want to tell you
FIX A LEAK
has worked in our old cedar tub. It is
nothing short of remarkable! We had been
concerned we would need to abandon this tub,
as it has been leaking large amounts of
water for the past 2 years. But applying
Fix-A-Leak has stopped it and we can now
enjoy it when we wish. Thank you!!
Richard B., Longmeadow, MA. 6/18/2015
We had to make an
emergency closing of our spa two winters ago
when it was 30 below zero. As a result. the spa
sprung a leak in the system. Last year I
couldn't find the darn leak that was causing my
pumps to pulsate rather than run freely and the
spa was losing water. I ordered a bottle of
FIX A LEAK
and followed the instructions. The following
morning my pumps stopped pulsating and no more
water loss. FIX A LEAK REALLY WORKS! Thank
you for a great product that saved us from a lot
of costly repairs.
Andy B., Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Quebec, Canada,
Hi, about 18
months ago I bought a bottle of Fix a Leak
to see if it would solve a leak problem in a
concrete radiant floor with copper lines. I
have a ranch house built in 1952 that is hot
water boiler heated by copper lines in
concrete. When a hole develops in one of the
lines it can be a radiant floor killer. If a
company is willing to try and fix a radiant
floor leak, the demolition of finished
floors and concrete and the cost is
incredible, and the fix may not work.
manifold is made up of six copper lines,
each about 200 feet long in concrete. So I
isolated the copper line with the leak.
Using an external sump pump and a 5 gallon
tub I pumped
Leak though the line for 10 hours. I
then cleared the line with air and let it
set for 48 hours. I pressured tested the
line and it held. It has been back in
service under pressure for 18 months with no
pressure loss. The floor is heated with 160
degrees water at 15 to 20 psi. Fix a Leak
saved my radiant floor.
radiant heated floor systems have been shut
down because of small line leaks that can't
be found or fixed. Home owners are then
faced with the cost and installation of a
whole new HVAC system.
free to use my experience to inform your
customers who may have radiant floor
First I want to say what an excellent and
very complete site. You sell products, but
what you give away is much more valuable,
Free Advise on Pools and Spas. Impressive.
So lets get to the rat killing. I have
a Hot Tub, have replaced some pluming parts,
but can't get rid of the slow leak. My
Tub manufacturer says not to run the tub
without a filter in it, Yet you say to
circulate the water. I plan to take out
filter, then add
Leak and program it to filter each and
every other hour for 1 to 2 days, if needed.
I will decide how many days to run the
filter less system by how the leak responds
to your great product. I had used it
before on different Hot Tub and it worked.
So for last 15 yrs, I have watched evening
news in my hot tub, But, now that
its enclosed on my back patio, the leaks
have to stop. I'm letting it heat back up to
92 degrees and am about to put in Fix a
Leak. I'm sure it will cure my
problem. I wanted to say that I was at my
wits end with the leak problem and then I
remembered your product. It has given
me hope of remedying the leak, and getting
back to my normal daily routine, which will
go on indefinitely. Thanks again for a great
informative website and a great product.
Lifelong customer and admirer
Dave H. Ohio ,
Anyway, I am
THRILLED with the results at this point!
Thank you again for your supplemental
directions on how to fix spa leaks. No water
loss at all since I used the product. This
is absolutely amazing to me! Thanks
NO water loss in the last four days!!!
Since some of the insulation is still
under the tub, in those back corners I
couldn't reach, I'm going to give it
several more days to finish curing. I
think whatever insulation was still in
there and water logged has drained out
some, as the bottom of the spa shell pan
is pretty much dry now. I still want to
get out more of the old insulation, and
then replace it for winter, and can do
that in a few weeks (I smashed my finger
in the car door, so I'm a little
handicapped right now and don't feel up
to taking apart the side of the cabinet
to get to one of the back corners of the
just had to get back with you
and let you know that my spa has
not lost even a quarter inch of
water in the past 4 days, since
I treated it with the fix a leak
on Monday evening. WOO HOO!
Remember, I was having to top
off about three inches of water
in the tub every other day!
pulled out as much insulation as I
could, and used the shop vac to
remove as much standing water as I
could in the bottom of the spa
shell. When I was ready to add the
fix a leak, I wanted to make sure it
got straight into the jet lines, so
I ran the pump with the jets on.
Then I took an aluminum pie plate
and held it around the skimmer area.
I figured that using the pie plate
to section off the water in front of
the skimmer, the product would go
straight into the system and hit the
jet lines when I added it, and not
be pulled out into the seating area
as it was added due to the jets
pushing the water all around the
Just wanted you to know that
we ordered your Fix A Leak product and
received it the other day. We removed the
filter and poured in the product on Saturday
morning. It is so hot, the water around the
tub started drying up within hours (the tub
sits on a concrete deck). This morning
(Sunday) all but the water immediately
underneath the tub is gone! We are so
pleased as we were afraid we would have to
either spend hundreds of dollars (which we
don't have) to get this resolved or get rid
of the tub (which we dearly enjoy). We are
both retired and don't have a lot of extra
money these days, and although we know that
we will eventually have to replace the tub,
it won't have to be this year. We did read
that the application may need to be applied
every year or two. We can handle spending
12.95 plus shipping, but not $5,000!
Thanks again, for publishing the
testimonials and also the directions on how
to best use the product.
The Richardsons, 1/28/2014
I have used your
Fix A Leak product in my spa recently to seal a
leak. I pulled the filter cartridge, added a 8
oz bottle and after a week the problem seemed to
have gone away. I am very pleased with the
results. Thank you.
Kevin W., 7/7/2013
Alan, I used about
16-ounces of Fix-A-Leak, to seal my spa leak. A
satisfied Fix-A-Leak user.
Jim P., 2/4/2013
Just wanted to let
you folks know, I LOVE YOU. I had drained my Hot
Springs Spa surrendering to that fact that it
was going to be empty this winter because of a
dang leak. Checked on-line and found your
product. Ordered, got it fast, put it in, no
leaks, praise the Lord. One question, do I
have to clean the filters and how soon after
reinstalling them? I also signed on your
E-Letter mailing list. Thanks for a great
product, hope it lasts a long time.
John M., Indiana,
October 2012, placed First Order for Fix-A-Leak
and shortly after it arrived, pulled all 3 spa
filters, to run it. As your web-site
results mentioned, it does work. It did stop the
leak. Wish everyone luck.
Jim W., Tampa-Bay, FL, 11/18/2012
Dear Alan. Just a
note to thank you for your quick service and
excellent product. It stopped the leak in a day
last week. Best regards, and thank you so
Hank Steiner, 7/24/2012
Thank you very
much for your advice. The Fix A Leak product
worked as advertised and did fix the leak. I
would not hesitate to recommend the product to
anyone with a pool.
Dick F., 7/5/2012
I followed one of
your suggestions on fixing a main drain leak.
The drain line itself had been pressure tested
and showed no leak. I poured a pint of
Fix-a-Leak down a long PVC pipe to the top of
the drain cover, as the leak was determined to
be in the round 'pot' below the cover. The leak
stopped within one day and has not leaked since
for four days. Many thanks for your help.
Joseph L., 7/1/2011
It was leaking a
lot when the pump was running. We bought 2
bottles of the stuff and we are amazed, the pool
is holding water! We put the stuff in the
pool Monday evening and the grandchildren were
swimming on Thursday. THANKS!
the instructions on the bottle, the leak in my
vinyl liner in-ground pool has stopped. At night
I kept the product circulating by using the pool
vacuum cleaner with the drain valve slightly
open. When I noticed that the leak was slowing,
I added another bottle of product. I was losing
up to an inch of water a day. My pool service
told me the skimmer line, loveseat return and
drain were leaking. They gave me no guarantee
that they could fix the leaks by digging, which
would have cost at least $1000. I gave them all
the information on your product Fix a Leak, but
they are skeptical. You may place this on your
website. Thank You and Regards.
Gerard M., 6/12/2011
This is not a
question but a Thank you. The product Fix a
Leak saved me over a $1000 in repair bills. My
hot tub had a huge leak and after 3 days of
running the tub with your product it stopped.
I'm ordering more (just in case) for the future.
A great product. No wonder the stores around her
don't supply it. It would put their repair men
out of business. Thanks again.
Chad B., 7/10/2010
I have recently
purchased from you two bottles of Fix a Leak,
and used one to repair a Pool leak which was not
located at all. Even, if I had a serious doubt
prior to use it, by now I do confirm that I am
amazed by this product and diagnosed that after
2 days, the leak is now completely stopped, when
for the same period of time ( 2 days ) I was
loosing about 1.6" ( 40 millimeters or 1400
liters ) a day.
Pat V., France, 8/16/2009
I have a 10,000 in
ground pool that is 15 years old. Over the past
several months I noticed the water level
dropping. After adding water it would lose 1-2"
of water overnight. I was given an estimate of
several hundred dollars just to diagnose the
problem. I was skeptical but bought a quart of
Fix A Leak, from your website. I followed the
directions and after a week the water level has
not gone down. Pool leak problem solved!
Bill C., Wellington, FL. 12/9/2008
Hi Alan. I just
wanted to tell you of the success I had with the
Fix a Leak product. I have a six year old spa
that was a father/sons in-ground project with a
surrounding deck. Well, after a long period of
denial when the level of the water dropped about
1 then 2 then 6 inches over night, I bought a
bottle of some other leak sealer from the
dealer. It initially worked, but then the leak
returned. I put in another quart and then
another and then gave up and started living with
a $6000.00 plastic hole in the back yard. A
month or so ago I found the Fix A Leak product
and read through the pleased customer reviews. I
bought a quart and put in half, run all the
pumps for most of a day. After that I let it
just sit and noticed that the leak seemed 90%
less. I drained the spa, waited 4 days then
refilled and put the rest of the bottle in and
repeated the process. Looked at it the next day
and was I happy! The water level held. I drained
the spa for a second time and let it dry for a
week. After wiping down the shell, filling and
heating to 100 degrees, I'm still happy.
I bought another quart just to have on hand.
Keep this a secret, but you should charge twice
as much for such a great product. I hope you'll
put my email as a testimonial on your web site.
Bob C., Thousand Oaks, CA, 10/26/2008
Alan, I received
the FIX a LEAK and it worked!!! Thanks very much
for your help.
Neil D, United Kingdom, 8/19/2008
I couldn't find
were to leave feedback so I am sending you this.
I had a problem finding my leak in my inground
vinyl lined pool. I was losing about a 1/2" of
water a day. I tried the bucket test. I tried
using dye to see if I could find the leak around
my fixtures with no luck. I ordered Fix A Leak
from you and just followed the instructions and
now no leak. This product worked great. I would
tell anyone that has a possible pool leak to use
this product. Thanks again.
Donald G., Clinton, TN, 6/16/2007
Just would like
you to know I had a leak in my spa's filter
system, the repair was going to be $600.00 to
fix. I used FIX A LEAK, I followed the
directions and in just 24 hrs, the LEAK WAS
GONE! Unreal, and it's been a while now and no
pool leak, and the filter system works fine.
Just a great product, so for around $13.00 I
saved $600.00. Thank you for FIX A LEAK.
Mike F., New York, 6/25/2006
Thank you for your
prompt response. This product is unbelievable.
The 10oz has sealed the leak/s. I was quoted
$450.00 to repair the leak. This cost me $29 and
change. Incredible! Now I know why my local
pool/spa retailer recommended not to use the
product, because it works! You will be glad to
know that he now stocks the product. Thanks
again. Kind Regards.
Darcy B, 6/30/2005
. . . I have
checked the level of the water for 5 days also
in the pool and in the skimmers and it wasn't
leaking either. I want to sent you many thanks
and congratulate for your Fix A Leak product.
George P., Greece, 7/1/2005
Where can I sign
to make a commercial for Fix A Leak and your web
site? I was skeptical when that small bottle
arrived in the mail (very promptly I might add).
How in the world would it find a leak I couldn't
see? But within 1 day and just several times of
stirring it up, I'm fixed. No leaking!!! It's a
miracle. Before I found your site, I was ready
to order and install a completely new liner.
Thank you!!! Love and light.
Wendy M., Albany, KY, 7/7/2005
. . . This stuff
is a great alternative to digging through the
insulation to find spa leaks. Sincerely.
Candice P., 10/11/2005
I got the Fix A
Leak. Really fast shipping. Thank you. I have a
small hot tub that sits on out indoor patio so I
couldn't get the package open fast enough. I put
about 2 oz. in and pulled the towel up that was
soaking up the water from the leak. I put a dry
towel down and waited about an hour and went to
check on the towel. Well it was hardly wet. Boy
that stuff works fast. Thank you.
Linda Bell, 5/18/2006
I had a good size
leak in the spa (build-in system in concrete+
tile within pool room) and lost about 3 gal/day
in the suction pipe of the circulation jets. It
appears that your “stuff” stopped the leak.
Thanks for answering all of my questions.
G. S., Longmeadow, MA, 9/1/2006
Hey Alan, Just
wanted to drop you a line. I used the Fix A Leak
product about a month ago. Well to my surprise a
couple of days after I had emailed you with some
questions it stopped leaking. That is an amazing
product. No more pool leak. Than you.
Greg I, 10/4/2006
Hi, I just used
FIX A LEAK in my hot tub. Amazing! The dripping
is gone, thank you. Now do I need to drain my
Drake N., Quesnel, BC, Canada, 10/24/2006
Alan: The product
worked Great. Saved me a ton of money! I would
recommend it to anyone. Thanks.
Gwyn H., NC, 4/25/2007
Dear Alan, you
were so nice to answer twice that I thought I
would give you feed-back that may be of use to
you as you advise others. The Fix-A-Leak proved
totally successful. Within an hour the water
loss had ceased.
Steve W, The Florida Keys, 4/26/2007
Alan – I recently
purchased two bottle of Fix-A-Leak from your
website. I just wanted to let you know that my
pool is no longer leaking at all. Fix-A-Leak is
a WONDER PRODUCT! My purchase of $60 saved me
thousands of dollars in repairs. My pool leak
was in my return line and it is now completely
sealed! Hooray for Fix-A-Leak!
Chris A., Danbury, CT, 9/5/2007
Hi Alan. The pool
leak is fixed. I followed the directions and
after the first 4 hours, the leak had stopped. I
have checked it regularly since – and nothing. I
would like to thank you for your correspondence
and very prompt delivery of this product. It
arrived exactly as you said it would. Thank you.
Amy H., Hamilton, MT, 11/19/2007
Hello Alan. My
above ground pool must of had a leak, somewhere
on the bottom of the pool. I didn't see any
signs of water accumulating, so that seemed the
logical place. The loss about 3/4" per day,
which I thought was too much for just
evaporation. I added a quart of Fix A Leak two
days ago and the daily loss is down to less than
1/4", which seems more like evaporation. I'm
glad I gave the product a try and thought that I
would share the good news. Your website has been
helpful, on other occasions, as well Thanks.
Mike J,, Babylon, NY, 7/1/2008
I was losing about
an inch of water daily, with no idea where the
pool leak was. I had my doubts that anything
this simple could work. But, it did! Thank you!
